Warmer and you’ll get a beer which is maltier that Stella Artois.

  • 1.5 oz – Saaz [4.0%] – Boil 60 min (Hops)
Step 3
  • 0.25 tsp – Irish Moss (Boil 10 min)

10 mins before end of boil add all of the above

Step 4
  • 0.5 oz – Saaz [4.0%] – Boil 5 min (Hops)
Step 5
  • 1 pkgs – yeast of your choice.

Prepare a 2L yeast starter by stirring the yeast into the water then let mixture stand in cup for 15 minutes, make sure it is bubbling and then you will add it to your beer after the beer has cooled.

Fermentation Through Bottling Your Stella Artois Style Beer

let cool in pot or primary before adding yeast, pour into carboy leave a at least a third of the carboy empty and put on airlock.

Chill wort, top off to 5 gallons, and stir to mix and aerate.

Make sure your carboy is around a third empty leaving space for frothing and foaming.

Pitch yeast and ferment at lower end of what the yeast package says for 4 days or when fermentation bubbling has stopped.

After 4 days rack into your secondary carboy and let sit for awhile. The less exposure to oxygen the better it will taste so be careful when you rack.

After you wait for the second time you will bottle the beer sterilize and then bottle and cap again siphon slowly so that that sediments don’t get mixed in.

Step 5
  • 3 oz of priming sugar

Add priming sugar before bottling.
